How to make sure all files are copied from old mac


(Linda Bertani) #1

Hi All.

I’m sure this is a newbie question … Just got a new mac air and have done the upgrade to RW6. Put a jump drive in old mac and copied my latest site. Clearly I did not get all the files because now when I open on the Air I only see the sidebar, headers on each page, something I pasted in (chart). All the content is missing. I’m sure I did not bring content files over but … can you tell me where they are? I copied the folder that says “Content”. Maybe the content is buried in there?

THANKS!!

Thanks britinusa. That didn’t work. There was no containers file and no com.realmac etc.

Right now, I’m trying to put RW5 on the new laptop. That website file opens fine. Thought if I could find that, I could then just try to open it in 6. We’ll seeeee.

Tnx.

In order to install RapidWeaver on your other machine, please download the latest version of RapidWeaver 6 and install it on your new machine.

In order to move the third-party add ons, you will have to follow these next steps:
• Open RapidWeaver 6
• While holding the ⌥-key down, head over to the menu and select [File > Reveal Addons Folder] (please refer to this screenshot)
• Quit RapidWeaver
• You will have to copy the contents of this previous folder on to your secondary computer, and add them to the same folder on your other Mac.

Finally, when working across multiple computers, it is very important that you do not store your .rw6 RapidWeaver Project File (or .rwsw for RapidWeaver 5) on Dropbox (or similar cloud synching solutions) The best way to work across multiple computers would be to save your project locally, then right-click on the project file and select [Compress…]. This will add the project inside a .zip archive. You can them move the .zip archive via USB or Dropbox. Please make sure to always save your projects locally.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you.
